I hope you've found out by now, but, in case you haven't, the latch to remove the canister is right by the handle on top of it, just don't lift until you release the latch with your thumb, it's got a safety to keep you from hitting the release when you're using that handle to carry the vacuum. (good engineering).
you can download a manual from the dyson site, here:

OK. Lost suction almost always means blockage. You need to check all the pipework, the hose and any bits you can remove at the base of the machine - if I remember right, the DC17 has a sort of U shaped bend at the bottom of the handle that you can remove - also turn it over and inspect the clear flexible plastic tube (if it's not blocked, it can get damaged and leak). As for filters, you do of course need regularly to wash the filter that's above the cannister (wash both the blue sponge and the yellow carrier) and be sure they are dried gently for at least 12 hours before putting them back. If you need new filters, any vacuum service shop should be able to supply them. I hope this helps. I value your feedback so please remember to rate my response. Good luck!

The motor has a protective overload cutout device to stop it from over heating - this can be caused by a blockage of some sort in the hose or brushroll compartment or blocked filters.
After checking the above and it still cuts out, take it back under gurantee

The washable filters very seldom wear out, they are sponge, but the prefilter on the housing CERTAINLY wears out. You can fix it here:

Hi Will! It appears your thermal protector sensor has kicked in and caused your cleaner to power off. This is usually due to a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try these steps to get your vacuum back up & running!
1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
Your vacuum should turn back on after it cools off, this can take up to an hour. Hope this helps!
